Felton-Boynton Wedding

Bureau of Invitations, Durham, North Carolina, 2008

Description

I was asked by a friend and co-worker, Lauren Felton (also the art director), to realize a concept she’d developed for her own wedding invitation. The concept made great use of the location, historical significance of the wedding, and reception venues for inspiration: an outdoor space at the Edgar Allen Poe Museum and the Main Street Amtrak Station in downtown Richmond, Virginia, respectively. This led to a finished theme generated around vintage train ephemera, and afforded us a wonderful opportunity for study, research and exploration of a specific, rich time and place. Additionally, a metaphor was drawn between travel by train and marriage as a shared journey, not only between the couple but also among the guests. This was on every level an absolute joy to be a part of as a graphic designer. 

Juror Notes

What feels like ornamentation is all functional in supporting the theme.
